Q. My husband received a Tdap vaccine two years ago during our first pregnancy. Now, I am pregnant again. Should he get another Tdap vaccine?
A. No. Husbands and other adults who will be around the baby should only get the Tdap vaccine if they have not had it before. However, pregnant women should get the vaccine during each pregnancy (between 27 and 36 weeks of gestation) because the antibodies will help protect the baby until he or she is old enough to be vaccinated.
